Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
Some Bloggers show photos of their homes starting with the entrance and all the way through every room. I enjoy seeing those photos and believe it gives the reader a bit more information about the personality of the Blogger. I need to do a little house cleaning and redecorating before I feel comfortable showing every room in my home. But, here goes with my home office, the place where I write the Friendship Tea Blog. Sometimes I listen to music or TV (listen to it more than watch it). Sometimes, when the phone isn't ringing, I enjoy peace and quiet and the view out the window above my keyboard.
This room, like others in our home is decorated in an eclectic style with a mixture of handcrafted, traditional, heirloom and modern furnishings.
So, how did I rate such a great room all to my own in our house? I previously ran two home-based businesses, including a tour company and a Longaberger® branch from here. After closing the tour company and dropping the responsibilities as a Longaberger Branch Leader, I moved a bunch of baskets out and added a single bed sleeper sofa (chair and a half) to make space for our granddaughter when she visits. This is my favorite room in the house. You will always find a bone china mug of tea on my desk when I am working. Today it is filled with freshly brewed Elmwood Inn Fine Teas Mayor's Cup. Can you count the teapots?
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
